We aim to entertain our audience, while shedding a little light on real, local and global social issues. Without being preachy, self-righteous… Or boring. A level of consciousness, awareness and intellect, is present Within even the most comedic and outrageous of our releases.

Everything we do comes from our hearts. We never have, and never will accept big corporate financial investment if it results in compromising our beliefs.

Our works are made on the basis of longevity.

All of our content is completely original. We take inspiration from many productions from all over the world. And we make them known publicly. In order to help further support those people that have inspired us over the years.

Breif overview

Akio Is an action packed 3 volume manga series. Over the past year we have brought to life a rich fantasy world of martial artists and warring kingdoms. Detailed and unique illustrations accompany a rich cast of characters on a journey of discovery. As the story unfolds You will experience awe… excitement… humor…. and surprise. Despite being based in a world far from our own the morals and lessons challenge the societal structures we all live under today.

What are the funds raised going towards?

We have already paid and produced the limited edition chapter 1 mangas and art peices that are available as rewards and they will be shipped immediatly on completion of a successfull campaign. We also have enough funds to produce the artwork for volume 1 (chapters 1 to 5).

The funds raised from this campaign will be used to print volume 1.

Rewards

Chapter 1 is available now! The rest of volume 1 (chapters 2 - 5) will be released to backers in digital format as they are completed. Compleition of volume 1 is set for March 2019.

The story

Akio was the youngest living member of the fractured Dragon clan. A naive, but strong, 19 year old. He lived with his grandfather Saruwatari, hidden outside of the corrupted central kingdoms of Dalos. But one day while he was honing his clans martial arts style, an intruder attacked.

The assailant was after a specific gemstone that plays an important role in the fate of Dalos. But how did he know where to find them? And how did he know about the gem?

In search of answers Akio risks life and limb. The more he uncovers about the war for knowledge amongst the 7 kingdoms the more questions he needs answering. The journey leads deep into a conspiracy that involves his family and reaches to the upper echelons of society In every kingdom of Dalos.

Stretch Goals

 

Risks and challenges

We are completely independant and committed towards seeing the creation of Akio through to its conclusion. We currently do freelance work to pay the bills and any spare time we get goes towards our Akio project. Surplus funds raised will help relieve the pressure on us to take on freelance work and will ultimately mean we can produce Akio at a faster rate.
